Forward Scott Gomez will attend New Jersey Devils training camp next month on a tryout basis.

According to the Devils’ General Manager, Lou Lamoriello, the two determined after meeting a couple times that Gomez still desires to play and would like to try. Lamoriello encouraged him to do so and said “he’d be given every opportunity.”

In the 1998 NHL Draft, Gomez, 34, was New Jersey’s first-round pick (No. 27), and was a member of the Devils’ Stanley Cup-winning teams in 2000 and 2003. In 2007, bhe signed a seven-year, $51.5 million contract with the New York Rangers.

He was traded in 2009 to the Montreal Canadiens, who used a compliance buyout on his contract in 2013. Gomez most recently played for the Florida Panthers, scoring two goals and 12 points in 46 games.

Gomez scored 19 goals and 70 points as a rookie with the Devils in 1999-2000 to win the Calder Trophy, and he currently ranks sixth in franchise history in assists (334) and points (450).

The New Jersey Devils will kickoff the preseason on Monday, Sept. 22 against the New York Rangers at Madison Square Garden, followed by two more away games. The Devils will return home to New Jersey’s Prudential Center on Sunday, Sept. 28 to play one of their biggest rivals, the Philadelphia Flyers.

As the Gillette Brasil Global Tour resumes after the 2014 World Cup, the Brazilian national team will play Ecuador at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey on Tuesday, Sept. 9 at 8:30 p.m.

Brazil, the only team to win the FIFA World Cup five times, managed to finish fourth as the host country in this year’s world cup. The Brazilians fell 7-1 to Germany in the semifinal before bowing out in the third-place game with a 3-0 loss to The Netherlands. The team’s manager, Luis Felipe Sclori, resigned, and it was evident that was not the only change needed.

After Sclori resigned, 1994 World Cup winner Dunga took over as Brazil’s manager for the second time in his career — the first was from late 2006-2010. On Tuesday, Dunga named the 22-man squad who will take on Ecuador in New Jersey on Sept. 9, and only 10 players from the 23 that played on behalf of Brazil in this summer’s World Cup remain.

Full Squad

Goalkeepers
Rafael Cabral (Napoli)
Jefferson (Botafogo)

Defenders
Alex Sandro (FC Porto)

Baseball season is winding down, which means there are only a few home games left to see New York Yankees’ captain Derek Jeter in the pinstripes.

The Yankees recently announced a special pregame ceremony to honor his career on Sunday, Sept. 7. All fans in attendance for the Yankees’ game vs. Kansas City will receive a limited-edition commemorative coin that will recognize the occasion. Tickets for this game area available here

In his final season, Jeter continues to reach new milestones. Earlier this month, Jeter moved past Honus Wagner to take over the sixth spot on baseball’s all-time hits list with a sixth-inning single in front of a sold out crowd of 47,376 at Yankee Stadium. This was Jeter’s 3,431st hit of his career, and with that, he now has more hits than any other shortstop in history.

“Honus Wagner, he is the last one on the list who has played shortstop,” Jeter said. “That one hits home a little bit. Anytime you pass guys that have had the careers that they’ve had, it is kind of overwhelming.”

The Yankees will be back in the Bronx on Tuesday, Aug. 19 to face the Houston Astros.

Walking with Dinosaurs the Arena Spectacular is roaring at Newark’s Prudential Center through July 27, 2014.

The show depicts the dinosaurs’ evolution with almost cinematic realism. Walking with Dinosaurs has scenes of the interactions between dinosaurs, how carnivorous dinosaurs evolved to walk on two legs and how the herbivores fended off their more agile predators.

Ten species are represented from the entire 200 million year reign of the dinosaurs.  The show includes the Tyrannosaurus Rex, the terror of the ancient terrain, as well as the Plateosaurus and Liliensternus from the Triassic period, the Stegosaurus and Allosaurus from the Jurassic period and Torosaurus and Utahraptor from the Cretaceous period.  The largest of them, the Brachiosaurus is 36 feet tall, and 56 feet from nose to tail.  It took a team of 50 – including engineers, fabricators, skin makers, artists and painters and animatronic experts – a year to build the production.

The history of the world is played out with the splitting of the earth’s continents, and the transition from the arid desert of the Triassic period is given over to the lush green prairies and forces of the later Jurassic.  Oceans form, volcanoes erupt, a forest catches fire — all leading to the impact of the massive comet, which struck the earth, and forced the extinction of the dinosaurs.
